Summary or Abstract : The creation of Canada's anti-stalking statute, or criminal harassment law, slightly more than a decade ago marked the beginning of a new risk assessment imperative. It provided Canadian law enforcement officials with new opportunities to manage stalking cases, but it also created new demands for violence risk assessments. Unfortunately, the empirical research on stalking offers law enforcement personnel little guidance on how to approach these tasks. Although research is starting to identify risk factors of stalking violence, most of this work has been carried out in relatively small, clinical-forensic samples and so the validity and practical utility of these risk factors in the law enforcement context remains unknown. More importantly, there has been virtually no empirical research looking at the relationship of different risk factors to specific case management practices. To develop a better picture of the violence risk factors associated with stalking cases encountered by Canadian law enforcement personnel as well as examine the influence of these risk factors on their selection of case management strategies, this dissertation examined all documented investigations of criminal harassment carried out by the Vancouver Police Department during the 1997 calendar year ( N = 241). Arresting the alleged perpetrator was a management strategy implemented in slightly over half the cases in which it was possible for police to intervene. The likelihood of this management strategy being adopted proved to be significantly greater in the presence of numerous violence risk factors, however, only four of these risk factors (unemployed perpetrator, female victim, threats of physical harm, and physical violence) emerged as significant predictors of arrest during a series of multivariate analyses. The implications of these findings for the investigation and management of criminal harassment cases are discussed..
